12/03/2004: "W"

Although this is a very simple image, It will always have a little place in my heart...

...because it was used in a full page ad in W magazine. I've had images used in a lot of ways, but W is big. I mean it's a big publication, but it's also a large size magazine. It was nice to see it so big in a magazine ad. Again this is Kiley (pronounced keely).
model: Kiley Wirtz
makeup: Burke Daniel
hair: Suzanne Chadwick
Oh, and here is the tear sheet of the ad if you want to see how it was used.

camera/film: Hasselblad, 120mm, Fuji Provia 100
lighting: A single Speedotron head with a 12" reflector and a lightsox diffuser. There is also a table just below her waist with a large silver reflector on it to cut down the shadows a bit.

Wow. I subscribe to W just because I love the ads. I'm so proud of ya kid! I'm gonna head over to the Arts Factory next week. Oh, and yeah, lets do lunch in January. I'll bring the artist bf if you bring the robot collection.


PS, Monty the hat totally WAS being a punk ass bitch, you were SO right...poor poor Frondy...

I thought it was sporting of you to give the hair person credit when you don't see any hair in the photo!

~I love the simplicity of the shot, the xlnt skin tones...~

Arts Factory... January... Robots... Got it.

Giving everyone credit is pretty common practice editorially. Often you will see a fashion layout in a magazine where the designer of the pants is listed even though it's not showing any pants. Besides, it was easier for me to copy and paste the code for the credits from an earlier post from this same shoot.

Oh, and Thanks btezra! It was for a skin care company so good skin tones were important.

Hey! Cool to see the ad we shot together!I was actually wondering if you might have any of the copies from W magazine left over?Drop me a line if you get the chance!All my best, sweet dear!!!

I really love your photography. Taking it out of the corporate context, it loses the "push" and just IS. Without a pitch in one's face, it's almost impossible to miss the beauty in your work. Thanks.

Hello, came here from your nomination in the weblog awards. Nice site and great photos. I like this shot, I've subscribed to W for years and years just for the photos/adverts.

I read somewhere you were setting up a RAID system, have you seen the Apple Xserve RAID, very nice.

Gotta go, you're site great, keep it up.

Okay B! Hope I got your link switched around to the right one. Sometimes I'm not the sharpest crayon in the box!

Thanks for dropping by my place, Brooks. I popped over her and was pleasantly surprised -- nice clean design and gorgeous photography. Beautiful work -- super creamy. Have you ever written any photography tips and tricks articles or taught classes? I love good photography, but I'm a massive newbie at it and I'm always looking for good instruction. Thx again! Cheers.
